To Gary and Ricky:
Whenever one of our age group passes on, those who are left, from the Springwater area, remember.
The news of the passing of Marilyn Courtenay brought many Springwater-ites, back to the late 1940's and early 1950's. It was usual in those Springwater community days to gather at least weekly in some families house; or back yard in the village, with a guitar. In our village the music was thanks to Ron Heimbecker (Verna Helsendagers brother).
It was at these times that the ``Springwater Village singers``, perched on some families woodpile, would get harmonizing. These were singers who doubled on Sunday - at Springwater church - singing in the choir.
These were great times and Marilyn contributed to a lot of our youthful village fun. Your mother had a great sense of humour those were marvelous days.
Please accept our sincere condolences regarding your mothers passing.
Jackie Chanin and Harry Atkinson
